London, England and Paris, France

Paris

This international study opportunity to London and Paris is part of the semester-long course entitled "European Exploration: London and Paris," which will introduce students to two exciting European capitals and allow them to gain an understanding of diverse cultures.

Treating cities as texts, students will "read" urban spaces as one might read a book. The public spaces: streets, rivers, museums, stores, pubs and cafes, outdoor markets, buildings and parks, will function as primary texts to which we can apply theories of space, place and identity.

Students will be encouraged to draw conclusions from literary texts (short stories, creative non-fiction, articles, etc.), visual texts (photographs, visual displays, films, etc.) and finally from city environments treated as texts. Specific sites to be visited with a professional guide include: Windsor Castle, Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, St. Paul's Cathedral, Champs-Elysees, Versailles, Boat ride on the Seine, Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame, and a Fashion Atelier.

This international study experience will take place over spring break during the spring break from March 7-14, 2016.
